ABCs of Me and a WINNER ...

Since I am running around like crazy (working at Doodle's school today, packing, mildly freaking out), I don't really have the time to sit down and write a well-composed post. So, instead, you get the ABCs of me. And if you make it until the end, you'll find out whether or not you won my giveaway, which is reason enough to read ...

(A) Age:
I turned 29 this month. And I'm already counting down the days until the big 3-0!
(B) Bed Size: King. J (who's 6'7") and I just upgraded last February, after spending six years sleeping in the most.uncomfortable.queen.bed.ever.
(C) Chore You Hate: Washing silverware. There is something about scrubbing utensils that just bothers me.
(D) Dogs? No way. No how. No sir. I don't like the idea of an animal living in my house. Plus, my kids are PETRIFIED by dogs, so it's not like they'll be asking for one anytime soon.
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Breakfast, of any sort. I wake up hungry. Like full out starving. I'm I don't eat within 10 minutes of getting out of bed, I'm not a happy camper.
(F) Favorite Color: Pink and yellow.
(G) Gold or Silver? White gold. Yellow gold makes me cringe.
(H) Height: 5ft 9in. And I am bound to be the shortest person in my family.
(I) Instruments You Play: Do armpits count?
(J) Job Title: Mom. Wife. Superhero. Running coach. Small business owner. Take your pick.
(K) Kids: Three daughters. Dizzle, 5 1/2. Doodle, 4 in March. Dilly, 2.
(L) Live: Glen Allen, VA.
(M) Mom's Name: Annemarie. But no one has called her that in years. Well, except maybe telemarketers.
(N) Nicknames: T. TMB. Moe.
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? Just when the girls were born.
(P) Pet Peeve: When people are late. Procrastinators. Slow drivers. Basically anything that wastes my time.
(Q) Quote from a Movie: "Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior." - Empire Records
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right.
(S) Siblings: Two younger sisters.
(T) Time You Wake Up? On run days, 5 a.m. The rest of the time, 7 a.m.
(U) Underwear: Boy shorts. Unless I'm running.
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Brussel Sprouts. Raw onions. Beets. Radishes. Okra. Scallions.
(W) What Makes You Run Late: NOTHING. I am NEVER late. In fact, I'm usually five minutes early. Didn't you read my pet peeves?
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: The better question is what HAVEN'T I had x-rays done on?
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Sweet potato bake. Black bean and corn chili. Black bean enchiladas. Burritos. Apparently, I specialize in vegetarian Mexican food.
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Um, yeah. I don't like animals. They smell weird and kind of freak me out.

You probably just learned more than you wanted to know about me. But, for making it to the end, I reward you with a winner. There were 540 entries and thanks to the winner is #97 ...

Congrats! Send me an email with your contact info and I will ship you your prize when I return from Disney.

Agreed on the silverware. Surprised (or maybe more like "hopeful at a future change") for both dogs and animals.

Have fun at Doodle's school!

The armpit thing really did make me laugh out loud.

I seriously can't imagine NOT having an animal. You do the kid thing, I'll do the animal thing. haha

Good luck this weekend!

I share those pet peeves.
